Annual reports

Annual reports by the Standards Commissioner

The Standards in Public Life Act requires the Commissioner for Standards to present a report on the performance of his functions “at least annually” to the Speaker of the House of Representatives. The Speaker must lay the report before the House.

To satisfy this provision of the Act, the Commissioner issued an interim report covering a period of one year starting from 12 November 2018, the date of his appointment. Later on he issued a definitive report covering his activities from 12 November 2018 to 31 December 2019 and including audited financial statements for the entire period.

The Standards Commissioner adopted the practice of publishing annual reports on a calendar year basis from 2020 onwards, unless circumstances warrant more frequent reports.
